Summary

The Evaluation for Learning group (EFL) is an evaluation, program planning, and social science research project specializing in K-12 education and based at the University of Pittsburgh's Learning Research and Development Center. Directed by Dr. Jennifer Iriti, the EFL works with local and national institutions on the design, documentation, evaluation, and strategic assessment of a wide variety of educational programs and reform efforts. An overarching theme in the EFL work is using evaluative inquiry to support improved decision-making by educational leaders, practitioners, and policy shapers. The resulting products are intended to be useful to specific sponsoring decision makers and organizations, as well as to generate knowledge for the broader research and evaluation communities.
